Daily Problem Solving
Daily Problem Solving Introductory Course: A 12-hour course (often combined with Lean & Theory of Constraints 101) to introduce students to the basic concept of individual and team problem solving. This curriculum includes problem identification, problem statement development, determining severity and causes, developing immediate corrective actions to isolate the problem and then permanent solutions to preclude recurrence.
This course is targeted at employees new to the work force or as preparation for people moving into team leader or first line supervisory roles in their organizations. Partners will often follow this course with a customized Daily Problem Solving Practical Application & Coaching program.
Daily Problem Solving Practical Application & Coaching: A three-month program to train our partner participants in Daily Problem-Solving methods. In a 16-hour course (given over two days in month one), the participants will be presented information on Lean 101, 8 Forms of Waste, 5S, Team Engagement, Value Stream Mapping, SIPOC, Daily Problem Solving/Waste Elimination Training, and Basic Project Management Tools. In months two and three, the participants will receive Black Belt coaching and support as they learn to use the methods and present their findings in report outs to their leaderships.
